Join us at the Center for Contemporary Arts for a talk by composer and media artist Adam Basanta.
Adam Basanta (b. 1985) is an award-winning composer and media artist whose work traverses electroacoustic and instrumental composition, audiovisual installations, site-specific interventions, laptop performance, and dynamic light design. His artistic output interrogates the intersections between conceptual and sensorial dimensions of listening and audiovisual perception, the re-animation of quotidian objects, and the articulation of site and space. His concert works have been presented worldwide and awarded multiple national and international prizes, including Métamorphoses 2010 (Belgium) and the John Weinzweig grand prize in the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers (Canada).
For his 2015 Currents installation, Basanta presents “A Room Listening to Itself” – a site-specific sound installation exploring amplified acoustic inactivity within a unique spatio-acoustic environment.Get Directions
